It is at once incredibly long yet also totally spherical on the palate. Bright red fruit freshly cut flowers and spices are all woven together gracefully but this is really a wine of textural finesse above all else. Rich layers of fruit stain the palate on the intense deeply satisfying finish. This is a dazzling showing from Christian Serafin. Anticipated maturity: 2025-2040.

Pure but reticent nose offers black raspberry flowers cinnamon and spices. Wonderfully silky and lush but with superb inner-mouth energy contributing to an overall impression of sappiness. Hints of pepper and ineffable spices contribute lift and grip to the very long and subtle finish. There's evidence of wood tannins here perhaps from the Francois Freres barrels used for this cuvee.

A discreet application of wood does not reduce the considerable appeal of the ripe pure and airy nose that is classic Gevrey from a cool vintage with its broad array of wild red berry fruit earth humus and a hint of animale. The broad-shouldered flavors possess excellent mid-palate concentration that enrobes the buried but still quite firm tannins while culminating in a beautifully balanced robust and explosively long finish. This is also very clearly built to age and will require most of a 20 year cellar siesta to arrive at its apogee but it should be well worth the wait. Don't miss!
